Eva Longoria’s body has stayed tight and toned from her twenties through her late-forties, and we finally know her secret. In a recent interview with Bustle, the 47-year-old breaks down her favorite form of exercise, her trick to decompressing and the wellness trend she’s dying to try.
Longoria’s morning consists of snuggles from her three-year-old son and her daily trampoline workout. “I don’t do goat yoga or anything like that,” she says. “But when I first started doing trampoline workouts, everybody was like, ‘What is that?’…It’s so good for lymphatic drainage. I burn more calories doing that than running an hour, so it’s really changed my life. Aside from bouncing, I do heavy weight training.”
As she’s stretching, she meditates. “It could be for two minutes or 20 minutes. It just depends on the day, but those are the two things that really center and ground me every morning.” Her biggest advice for nailing down the flow? Follow a guided meditation. “A lot of times, you feel like, ‘I can’t do this, I can’t quiet my mind,’ but when you have somebody walking you through it, it’s so much easier. That’s really a gateway into deeper meditation.” When she needs an added boot of calm, her masseuse Kimmy is only a text away. “She’s my go-to for stress relief,” she adds.
But, just because Longoria has her routine down to a science doesn’t mean she doesn’t want to branch out. Explaining that she’s been dying to try cryotherapy, Longoria says there’s been one factor holding her back. “It just seems like you’ve got to go to a place and do it. So if I have to leave my house, it’s already out of the question.”
Once the day is done, it’s time to unwind and get ready for bed. “I learned during the pandemic that what you’re putting into your body and at what time really affects your sleep and your sleep affects your day and your mentality,” Longoria tells Bustle, adding that she uses the Oura Ring ($300) to nail down her snooze patterns. “What I found is I get deep sleep when I don’t eat super late, so I usually eat with my son around five or six in the evening, and then I’m done for the night.”
